Self L.O.V.E

So my pwetty ladies am sure your wondering what i mean by self love, but before i get into that let me explain why i am strong believer in self love. my mother who is my mentor,best friend, my better half, life support, strength and i could go on forever once told me that no one in this world could love me more than i love myself and at first i was like so you do not love mummy but as i have grown older am beginning to understand what she meant. Self love is not being selfish but protecting yourself emotionally,mentally, physically and what not.

Let me explain this in my own words,

L-LOOK AFTER MYSELF/LOVE YOURSELF DEEPLY

O-OBSERVE YOUR BODY AND MIND

V- ERMM I HAVE NOT FOUND A SUITABLE MATCH BUT AM ON TO IT

E-ENJOY YOUR  LIFE AND DO NOT LET LIFE ENJOY YOU.

Simple as boiling water well for those who know how to.

OMG i went nude




Lipstick by Mac-Spirit
Nars lipgloss-Stolen Kisses

Hey Pwetties

I have always wanted to try the nude lip thing but nothing ever worked because i have two toned lips (pink ad black lip colour). All the beige and caramel lip products i tried always look weird and ashy. Am such a die hard, i never give up on stuff especially when i really want it, i keep looking till i finally find what i want. The lipstick& gloss look pinkish but thats what works best for me as a nude colour because i have dark lips the pink in the product blends properly. The lipstick is a satin finish so it glides on smooth and the gloss ladies is funtabulous its my 1st Nars lip product and am in love its really really soft and long lasting.

Till my next post

MAC mineralize skin finish



As some of you may know i quit wearing liquid foundation. The hassle of finding the right colour to match my skin tone was worse than applying the dawn product. So over the summer i had the opportunity of working with Mrs Bolanle Feyita a fabulous Nigerian make up artist that is based in London. I picked up a lot tips and tricks from just watching and listen. But the one thing that really got my attention was the mineralize skin finish natural, this stuff is amazing. Seriously ladies i have found my substitute for foundation, it looks like skin and when used alone or to set foundation it gives your skin a natural glow.

Pro

  • Lightweight
  • Applies very smooth
  • Fab for setting foundation (for my foundation ladies)
Cons
  • Does not give the best coverage but thats fine by me because am not a full coverage lady.(i use it on its own)
  • Definitely will not control oil but i use my oil control lotion which works fine.
With all that said i love this product and will definitely recommend it to anyone.

Hair craze

Alllooooo my Pwetties long time no blog. I have been in my Lab injecting rats with toxic chemicals.....lol am joking before the vultures attack me for murder. Anyway moving on i have a sudden obsession with my hair and if you read my last post i mentioned i had natural hair. Ever since i moved to Arizona i have spent more time on the internet than i ever have in years. Youtube is my main playground and i do not know if its me but there is a natural hair revelation going on amongst black people. Its like everybody especially African American's are accepting the natural beauty and quitting on the "creamy crack" which am very proud of.

I have not always had natural hair, i have had permed hair for approx. 4  years of my life put together. The reason why i went back to my natural hair is because my hair was not finding the perm funny, it changed from jet black to brown and no matter how i tried to treat/care for it, it would still break and if there is one thing that can send me into depression is my hair breaking. So i chopped it up after 2 years of getting a perm, then 3 years later i permed it AGAIN worse mistake of my life but i do not want to talk about it.

I have had my natural hair for about 2 years now and loving everything about. I personally think its less stressful than when i had a perm because i do not have to put in extra time to look after it.

My hair dairy is really boring am sure you girls are expecting some story about how my family did not like when i cut my hair or my boyfriend broke up with me because he thought i was ugly and so on,well am story to disappoint you but i do not have any hair drama (seriously thou its only hair). Recently i learnt a lot about the products we put in our hair and how the chemicals in them affect our hair and blah blah. So i decided to research more about hair products and came across OYINHANDMADE..again if you follow me you would know how much noise i make about their product. Seriously Ladies their stuff is the ish my hair has never been so happy.Its like my hair went into rehab and came out like a brand new person confident and strong lol i refer to my hair like its a human being. My hair represents me so its important for me to feed it with the right stuff.

My hair routine

  • I only shampoo and condition my hair every 2 weeks(poo bar &honey hemp).
  • Deep condition every month with olive oil mixed with my honey hep.
  • I oil my scalp with (burnt sugar).
  • I spray juices and berries in the morning to add moisture to my hair without it shrinking the hair.
  • Sometimes i use olive oil or bio oil to add a tab bit of shine.
And thats all that goes into my hair, I believe in keeping things simple.Am currently on a no heat challenge which has been going very well (3 months no heat) i feel my hair looks healthier and stronger and i have not missed my dryer which is good given that i never use to air dry my hair. I will be keeping you updated on products that i have found that are health and chemical free but if your thinking of trying oyin there have sample packs that are reasonably priced.http://oyinhandmade.com/oyin/index.php?main_page=index..Check the site out its really interesting.


By the way meet Fluffy the cap.
